Norwich City Chief Executive David McNally has insisted that wantaway striker Grant Holt is not for sale this summer.
This news comes after Holt – who handed in a transfer request last month – once again spoke of his intention to leave Carrow Road.
McNally is standing firm though, saying simply to Sky Sports: “Grant Holt is not for sale.”
It now leaves Norwich and Holt in an extremely fascinating situation. The player clearly wants to leave and the club are determined not to sell.
With the Canaries’ manager Paul Lambert also set to leave the club – speculation suggests he is talks with Aston Villa – Norwich may want to wait until a new boss is in place before any decisions are made on transfers.
It has certainly been a stressful week for Norwich City fans, but McNally appears to be dealing with things well and certainly spoke like a man in control.
He also ruled out any chance of Jonny Howson leaving the club this summer and insisted that no senior players are for sale.
Regardless, a fascinating summer awaits for Norwich and it will be interesting to see who their manager and captain is come the start of the 2012/2013 Premier League season.
